A 17,000-square-foot Goodwill store and donation center will be built next to the Aldi on Weber Road, contingent on the Romeoville Village Board approving a special-use permit for the development.

The board was briefed this week on the concept plan, which call for the store to be built on a 2.73-acre site at Airport and Taylor roads, according to a Joliet Herald News story. The store would have 88 parking spaces in a lot with three access points.

The special use permit is required under village zoning laws governing second-hand retail stores.

“(Goodwill) is doing a lot of new, innovative things,” Mayor John Noak said in the Herald News story. “It’s going to be a nice asset to our community.”

Goodwill already has stores in Joliet, Plainfield and Bolingbrook.

Love Life-I just Googled to find the article and found many more articles that support what I had read. If you type in "How much does Goodwill donate to charity?" you will find lots of information. I truly feel duped by this organization.

You may have heard or even received an email titled “Think Before You Donate.” The email lists five non-profit companies and advises people not to donate to them. Goodwill is listed as one of the five, however the information included in the email is wrong. http://www.amazinggoodwill.com/in-the-news/bid/249113/Goodwill-Responds-to-Bogus-Email

The difference Mickey, Power Connection feeds the hundgry in our neighborhood, Good will doesn't. They are a great bunch of people and their only goal is to help others. They are always in need of donations. Thanks Mickey, let your friends know too
